The tablets and Laptops to take the place of the papers in British Courts and Court to provide lawyers with laptops and tablets

After the release of the revolutionary tablets the world has really changed a lot. Many of the folks are now getting dependent on the tablets for many of their daily needs. Now, a recent development in the Crown Prosecution Services, the Government department for public prosecution in England and Wales, is to provide lawyers with laptops and tablet computers to use in trials.

According to Keir Starmer, Director of public prosecutions, they have been using vans, lorries and people to move the mountain of legal papers around the country in daily basis, so now it's time to change them to electronic case files. He also believes that it will really look interesting to see a lawyer arriving at the court carrying a laptop with no paper being passed to the defense, both serve the documents electronically.

Although all seems to be simple but there might even be some hiccups on the way as for digital justice, lawyers face difficulties taking electronic information into prison and claimants cannot apply for legal aid online.

According to the reports at the Telegraph a pilot project is planned for the English city of Norwich. A spokesman also told that the official tablet is yet to be decided among the list of tables and he also denied the report that they had bought HP TouchPads.

Well taking this as a first step we find that all the places around the world might end up with this kind of digital devices used in regular office works. This new system might even help in speeding up the cases as well as cut down police paperwork.
